Join pre-eminent scholars Dr. Jessica Harris and Michael Twitty for a discussion facilitated by local chef and food writer Valerie Erwin. They will explore the food traditions that inspire contemporary African American cuisines in cities like Brooklyn and Philadelphia while providing historical context to the dishes Woodson so vividly describes in her writing.
